    It's really hard to tell without a heat stamp or additional pictures of the inside.

    The color looks like it may be WW2 vintage... I've noticed that the more recent M1 steel pots are almost a puke green in color, while older ones are more of a dark OD.

    Oh! The second image just popped up for me. The shell might be older, but the liner is definately a more recent version as Nick said.

    Hard to tell with the current pics. Is it a front seam, or rear seam helmet? Is it cork or sand/silica coating? The liner is easy, it is the Nam era style.

    One of my M1's has a liner just like that, it's from the early 1980s. the shell is probably late WW2 or Vietnam
